Locked in the Arms of a Crazy Life by Howard Sounes is excellent. If you read nearly everything in this forum you will be able to fill in a few blanks but that would take a long time.
 
I think Bukowski's letters tell the tale the best. And they're entertaining to read.

I never got through the Sounes book because there seemed to be a lot of inaccuracies. Plus, he writes rock star biographies and his formula just fell flat with Bukowski.
